TOMATOES! ~ Linguini Day ~ Clams & Linguini Recipe

Good 58º morning. Boy, yesterday was nice. Breezy and in the 70ºs. No AC, all the doors and windows open.

I started in on the tomatoes. After weighing them I discovered I have 40 pounds of tomatoes! That's a lot. Normally I go to 7 Oaks for tomatoes and get a lug ... or two. Each lug is about 14 pounds. So this has me busy. My house smells like tomato sauce!

First thing yesterday I went into town

for celery, onion, garlic, and mushrooms.

I also stopped in at Dr. Mike's

(the other vet in town) and showed them the picture of the
three dogs who had visited here the other day to see if
they knew the owners. Nope. Then to the PD...


to ask about this sign...

In the parking lot of the Double R, where we had Dave's Taco Tuesday party, there are only 3 parking spaces that do not have a sign like this ... for the dental place, the screen/window store, and the laundromat. If you are going to the Double R there is no place to park except on the street. I asked the Chief if this was enforced. He said it's private property and the owners of the businesses have the right to have your car towed and put into storage (Oregon section 98.810) if they want to. Apparently it doesn't happen, often. Seems to me there are 4 or 5 spaces for the laundromat, 6 or 7 for the screen/window shop, and 6 or 7 for the dental place. Rather irritating since most of the spaces with signs were empty! Ok, so it was something that was bugging me.

Came home and started cooking tomatoes while Maggie
watched me...
Oh, and also while I was at the market, and it was National Cream Filled Donut Day, I bought one!

It was HEAVEN!
